democrats to vote in favor of it. it marks the second time now that house speaker john boehner has broken his own rule, the boehner rule, model on the hastert rule. said the speaker would not bring any bill to the floor for a vote that does not have the support of a majority of his conference, a majority of the majority, it's known as. but last night, just about 20% of the republican conference voted for the bill. the vote split the leadership, majority leader eric cantor, majority whip mccarthy voted for the bill. boehner first broke his rule on new year's day when he allowed a vote to avert the fiscal cliff on taxes. apparently there's an addendum to the boehner rule. the majority of the majority, unless the country is on the verge of a tax crisis, or chris christie has access the to a megaphone. christie made sure this week that republicans knew he would use it. >> and i'll say again, new jersey does not expect anything more than what was done for louisiana and alabama and mississippi and if they want to make new rules about disasters, they picked the wrong state to make the new rules

need to get serious about spending, the debate is the perfect time for it. house speaker john boehner also ignored the obligation to pay the billings and complained about spending. the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government ceiling at the same time. they speak so confident, don't they? it is almost as if they forget about the spending cuts the president already gave them over a year ago. let's try to help them figure it out a little bit with visual and audio assistance. >> i signed into law $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two week ago, i signed a bill into law regarding revenue, by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money and the interest payments on the debt, that adds up to about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years, not counting the $400 billion saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we have made progress. >> didn't president clinton say it was all about math? republicans can >> they know the truth. listen to john boehner two years ago. >> do yo

much for being with me. joe johns in the situation room today. hey, joe. >> hey, brooke. >>> happening now, president obama decides to go big on gun reform acting on his own and asking congress for reform that will be hard to pass. we'll hear part of oprah winfrey's reaction to lance armstrong's confession. plus, an exclusive look inside a lab that could save your life. see how close we are to a super vaccine to keep you from getting the flu for years. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." we begin now with a guessing game about what is in president obama's so called comprehensive proposals to cut down on gun violence. the president and vice president are set to unveil their plans tomorrow and even though officials are trying to keep the deal under wraps, we already know what is in the plan. jessica yellin has been working her sources and joins us live now. what do you know? >> joe, today vice president biden delivered his plan to the president just a month after the newtown shootings and among the top recommendations that the president will unveil to

, thank you. >> it's a pleasure. thank you for having me. >> and next, how will john kerry differ from hillary clinton as secretary of state? assuming he is confirmed. first, we caught up with singer john legend at the inauguration and asked what it is he wants to see from president obama in his second term. >> i think the next four years we still have to worry a lot about unemployment. unemployment is still too high, too many people don't have opportunities that need it, and i think that's something the president still needs to work on even though everyone is talking about the deficit right now. i think washington needs to be focused on getting more people back to work.

to tom foreman. john, i want to ask you this question, pork disgusts me and every american. one person's pork is someone else's -- i don't know, best part of the animal. the part is why is it always in there? why can't they realize that americans want a clean, transparent bill and cut out the crap for lack of a better word. >> shouldn't be too much to ask but someone else's pork is another person's lifeline. this is disaster relief 11 weeks after sandy. lawmakers begged for assistance and got it quickly after disasters devastated their region and now all of a sudden they are calloused instead of doing the right thing. >> why not then give the amtrak money you need. why two thirds going to non-sandy-related things. give them the amount they need. >> part of it is narrative. remember the first sandy bill that passed a week or so ago, 67 republicans voted against it. there was no pork. it is disgusting when democratic lawmakers lard up a bill with things unrelated people should be furious. can't we get it together to do the right thing for the folks suffering. should we derail the whole t
't want it passed compromised john boehner in getting a better deal for their side. i think it's the same thing here. when you have wayne la pierre and david keene saying these crazy things, it compromises the negotiating position of people who do have an argument against certain restrictions. >> do you agree with that, meagan? >> i think there's a great theory called the baptist and -- where you have on the one hand the bootleggers love prohibition because it's great for business, and the baptists like prohibition because they're idealogically against it. >> it's great for your business. >> for the nra, look, this is how they fundraise. i guarantee that letter brought money pouring in. if you have seen what has happened to the gun market since newtown, you can't get high capacity magazines for love or money. i have not tested this personally, but i hear. guns are flying off the shelves. it's true that they don't do themselves a lot of good with the american public. >> maybe with their own party. that's -- business is different -- i mean, if you are listening to glen's point, and i only s
court said it was unconstitutional. >> you did? >> so you agree with john roberts? >> yes. >> you did. i'm surprised. because in that case -- so through the use of the commerce clause we can now mandate that people buy things? >> no, he didn't say you could use the commerce clause. he said you could not use the commerce clause. >> right. >> what he said was it was a tax. >> must have been a mix-up in the prenotes of the preinterview. but let's see a shot in freeze frame. this is the face of a truly confused man. the elevator doesn't go all the way to the top here, folks. if only sean hannity would listen to his boss, he might not be so confused. "the constitutional right about guns is for self-defense and hunting. founders did not mean modern weapons of war." lining up the crazy is not a difficult task for the right wing these days. but this rhetoric and hysteria i think is very dangerous. there is no basis to call the president of the united states a tyrant or a dictator, and no president ever deserves to be compared to stalin or hitler. but of course it continues. it happened earlier t
? >> cnbc chief writer jeff cox says yes and janes us to make the case and john mays says stronger headwinds are heading our way. jeff, you say we'll have an economic recovery and housing will have to lead the way. explain, and is it doing so? >> remember that old admonition, if not us, who and if not now, when? that applies to the housing market. if not housing what? i mean, we're seeing economist expectations of about 3%, maybe 2.5%, 3% growth in the u.s. this year. if that's going to happen, it's going to have to happen on the backs of the housing market. i heard some of the concerns that diane expressed. i don't think inventory will be that big of a problem going forward. so many houses that are had in the distress market pipeline. a couple of other quick points. >> very quickly. >> wealth effect that ben bernanke talks about is most prevalent in housing. housing prices get pressured up, that's going to help the wealth effect. >> okay. >> finally the stock market historically tells us when housing starts are up more than 25% in the previous year, the next year equity market gains about 9
, including governor john hickenlooper. >> we are a fully split state. we're almost exactly one-third democrat, one-third republican one-third independent. and there are strong points of resistance to going... you know, if you're going to try and do a ban or really serious restrictions on people's access to firearms. it's colorado, it's the west. and we are a diverse community within the west. >> reporter: there is no waiting period for gun purchases in colorado, and anyone over 21 can apply for a concealed weapons permit. hickenlooper supports expanding background checks in colorado to private gun sales, but has doubts about a proposed state ban of high-capacity ammunition magazines. >> of course, the devil's in the details. is that ten rounds or 30 rounds? and that's where the... that's where the robust discussion is going to come in. >> reporter: well, the shooting here in aurora has prompted the governor, scott, to propose an overhaul of the state's mental health system, an area he says has been neglected here in colorado. >> pelley: anna, thank you. yesterday, the president ordered the ce
of representatives to do that. i think that would be a mistake. >> john boehner responded the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending statement. wendell, a government shut down, is that something that really might happen? neither side is ready to blink yet. he has laid out they are ready to compromise if possible that could lead to a government shut down although probably not right away. president obama suggested right before the u.s. the people at home might be told they have to wait for their money. >> if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time social security checks and veteran's benefits will be delayed. we may not be able to pay our military air traffic controllers specialist who track down lose nuclear materials wouldn't get their paychecks. >> that's not default but credit agencies would likely downgrade america's rating that would raise the cost of borrowing money. ben bernanke says it's very, very important congress avoid this. >> republicans know it is not the first thing that would come from not paying all of
lover's pie. and this guy, papa john's founder became a right wing favorite after his cheesy complaints about the health care law. papa john even held a fundraiser for mitt romney and he couldn't believe the house that pizza built. >> what a welcome. what a place this is. who could have imagined pizza could build this? >> who could have imagined that pizza built that. but here's something else that's tough to imagine. >> at a time when the gop brand is at an all-time low, guess where they turned? to pizza. house republicans at their annual retreat today and the ceo of dominos is giving a presentation. the speech is titled, "turning it around." you really can't make this stuff up. should they look to domino pizza man for answers? can they do it in 30 minutes or less? how about a nice piece of humble pie. more on that in the gop retreat next. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, y
. now let's go to the other house. let's read, and i'll read for you, what senator john cornyn said. he said, we will raise the debt ceiling. he doesn't say may. he says we will. of course he is in the senate. we're not going to default on our debt. both of these gentlemen are on the right track. i personally think in my emotional state i might not have wanted to increase the debt ceiling but i think politics of course we can't be naive. the president has a very big platform for his strategy. he has the bully pulpit. and i think that some media are calling this a retreat on the debt ceiling. to me the only retreat in the equation is williamsburg, virginia. but i do think that now we can concentrate on what andy brenner and i were talking about yesterday and that is march 1st the sequester. march 27th the continuing resolution because we haven't seen both houses pass a budget and i think these issues are much easier to extract from the democrats/the white house because the short-term bumps are going to put a lot of pressure and lot of press in my opinion on the main issue and the main is
: meanwhile, let's take a look at john f. kennedy's inaugural back in the '60s. >> our country and all who serve it, and the globe from that-- and truly like the world and so, my fellow americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. and that was fantastic. >> it was. it's probably the single most memorable and quotable line in american presidential history and again, what's interesting, like fdr, the back drop for that speech was the cold war and we were actually losing it. we had lost in the space race early on to the soviets and feeling a bit demoralized and he was saying it's service to the country. >> steve: do we know who writes the speeches? is it general the white house speech shop that does that or did the president write this himself. >> the kennedy speech, and ted sorenson his long time speech writer often asked that and his line was did you write that speech? he would say ask not dot-dot-dot. the presidents like to put their own words to paper and suspect that president obama, too, will have a big hand in crafting it. >> steve: did he
.9. >> brian: putting it in perspective, knowing the challenges were different for each president, john meacham, an historian, wrote the book on jefferson, weighed in with bill o'reilly. >> the most important line and not in the speech, it's the fall in media household income over the last 12 years. without rectifying that, this will be an unmemorable presidency and potentially a significantly -- >> how is he going to do that in three years? how is he gog remedy that, turn that around so that the regular folks start to make more money? it seems to me almost inconceivable. almost impossible with his policies. >> with his policies. but i think we're all to blame here. i really do. i think that a lot of people don't want to heart hard truth. people don't want to pay more tax. they don't want to see these cuts. they don't want to embrace the simpson bowles kind of proposals. these are hard choices. but guess what? you and i didn't run for president. he sought the job. it is now his solemn responsibility and i think he is a good man and i think you agree with that. it's his responsibility to lead us
is the vice president at usaa investments. he joins me now from san antonio for a fox business exclusive. john, it is always good to speak with you. i'm courses you, you know -- i'm curious, we've had the big marks, especially the s&p hitting multiyear highs, but you say there's reason to be concerned. what is it? >> we have seen the equity market outperform the economy over the last couple of years due to the large monetary and fiscal stimulus, but recently we have seen earnings decelerate and our concern is just what's going to happen to top of line revenue growth to companies and then in particular their forward guidance, particularly for those companies who are exposed to consumer spending because of the recent 2% payroll tax hike. cheryl: okay. so do you think at this point as we look at the economy versus the markets and in particular the housing sector, which many analysts and many economists point to as being such a good thing, if the housing market does not have that true, true rebound in 2013, do you think that that is going to affect market performance? >> yes, we do. we're looking
house. dennis: joining us from both sides of the aisle, republican congressman john flemming of louisiana and democratic congressman john yarmouth of kentucky. congressman fleming, yarn and ardent proponent of gun rights. what did you think of the president's announcement today? >> beyond that, i am also a physician. i served as a coroner. and i have dealt with mental health quite a bit in my career. i think these executive actions or orders sounds like beefing up law enforcement. i have no problem with that. the devil is in the details. on the other hand what the president is calling for is again things we have done in the past, going after the guns, going after the criminals and, after assault weapons. the focus needs to be people doing the shooting. every case where we have mass murder we find a severely mentally ill mentally deranged person. we need to do a lot more in beefing up our mental health and also be more proactive in keeping people away from weapons and in this case these were legally purchased weapons he got from his mother. his mother should not have allowed h
